Why Travellers Choose This Tour

This tour covers more ground than most tours, visiting the Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation.
Honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, Daintree National Park is a great destination for sampling the exceptional biodiversity of the Wet Tropics of Queensland. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a scenic drive north along the rugged Coral Sea coast.

Your first stop is Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, an eco-park where you can observe the unique wildlife of Australia’s rainforest, wetlands and grasslands. Browse the well-designed habitats to observe cassowaries, koalas and crocodiles, and hand-feed friendly kangaroos and wallabies. 

Continue on to Mossman Gorge on the southern border of Daintree National Park. Take a guided nature walk through the rainforest, keeping an eye out for native species like the Ulysses butterfly and Boyd's forest dragon. Observe the lush landscape from platforms above the Mossman River and learn about the customs of local Kuku Yalanji people.

Cross the Daintree River on a ferry, and make your way to Cape Tribulation. Admire spectacular views from Mt Alexandra Lookout, where you can see all the way to the Great Barrier Reef on a clear day. At the Cape Tribulation Beach House, stop for a delicious lunch featuring your choice of steak, locally-caught barramundi or a vegetarian option.

After lunch, enjoy leisure time to stroll along the white sandy beaches and boardwalk at Cape Tribulation, swim in a nearby tropical pool or take a dip in the Coral Sea (depending on the season).

Finally, take a 1-hour cruise along the Daintree River, where you can spot saltwater crocodiles, reptiles, exotic birds and butterflies that make their home in the mangrove wetlands. On the return drive south, make one last stop at Rex Lookout before your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Great tour and better guide.
, Feb 2020
This tour was great, and our tour guide made it an even better experience. He was enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. He showed us (and demonstrated) so many things in the rainforest, it was such a fun experience. He even went out of his way to show us things that weren't technically on the tour, but were incredible and made us feel so lucky to see. Highly recommended!
Fantastic tour!

Excellent tour and guide. Gavin was very knowledgeable about every facet of the tour. All the stops were very enjoyable I would highly recommend this tour and Gavin.
Daintree Rainforest and Crocs

The trip we did was fascinating. Our favourite part has been the passion that the guide we had put in each explanation. It was illuminating and breathtaking. Would definitely recommend

I had a great day and Mal our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The lunch provided was top notch and I highly recommend the barramundi.
Great way to experience the rainforest and cape tribulation!

If your time is limited in Cairns this is a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. You could use a little more time at the animal sanctuary but other than that this tour is perfectly timed out. Cape Tribulation is beautiful! The guide was very good and knew a lot about the history of the area, as well as was an expert at pointing out specific vegetation and wildlife. I highly recommend this tour!

The guide was very knowledgeable and he can answer most of our questions in the trip. The tour was very well organised and lunch was good too. We had a great day and got a lot of take away about Mossman and Daintree back from the trip:)
Good job!

We had a great time, our driver Danial is fun and took good care of everyone, he is knowledgeable on the rainforest, thank you Danial.
Overfull Itinerary - Time mostly spent on the bus
, May 2019
Late start to the day, clearly flustered bus driver. Well under an hour spent at the wildlife park (tickets were offered for the next day but as we already had a full itinerary we couldn't accept as much as we would have loved to see more of the park). Bus trip out to a shuttle bus to access the gorge for a quick board walk. Back on the bus for a very long drive to a backpackers type place for lunch. No Rainforest walks near this site, just a rather ordinary stretch of beach. Not sure why the drive was so far to that particular place when others were passed along the way, unless they have a super cheap deal. Another long drive back to the saviour of the day Daintree River Cruise, a great time with a super informative guide. Much of this tour was unfortunately spent on the bus and in an extremely hurried fashion as the points to visit were far apart. Most people actually ended up falling asleep on the bus for stretches of the 'tour'. Would be better off to take a self drive to see the parts worth doing (the Wildlife Park and Daintree River Cruise) and exploring the Daintree yourself to actually get the chance to walk amongst the Rainforest. Other tours we did during our stay were the Kuranda Day Tour and Quicksilver Reef tour which were both amazing and so well run.
